I'm a Lampwork Artist who has 1.5 acres of vegetable/fruit garden and a couple chickens for eggs . . . . eclectic you say -- why not! It started out with a small garden that came with the house and an empty horse barn . . . . chickens eat anything and produce eggs. Then, after viewing lampwork beads on ebay and taking a class I was hooked -- great -- a summer job and a winter job - HA! The garden gets bigger (or more complex) every year, and the lampworking tools become more expensive each time -- so, here I am blogging!
